UCI Refuses Qhubeka-NextHash’s WorldTour Licence

The Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) has confirmed that it has refused Team Qhubeka-NextHash’s 2022 WorldTour licence.

Cycling’s governing body had already extended the deadline to try and allow Team Principal, Doug Ryder, time to try and find a new sponsor.

But the UCI has decided it has waited long enough, as it has announced the WorldTour teams for the 2022 season, with Team Qhubeka-NextHash not on the list.

In a statement the UCI said: “After hearing teams that had not been able to be registered directly by the UCI, the Licence Commission has decided (art. 2.15.071) to refuse the registration of Team Qhubeka NextHash.”

This is a potentially killer blow to any hopes the team had about continuing in 2022, with the only option now being the lower divisions of the sport.

In a tweet the team said: “We have noted the UCI’s press release today in which we have been refused the registration of a WorldTour licence for 2022.  We remain committed to our purpose of changing lives through bicycles. We will be making no further comment at this stage.”
